tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Arrange two oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then halve lengthwise. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1-inch-wide wedges, keeping the layers intact. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then slice crosswise into 1/2-inch strips. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling.

Roast the carrots
2 Roast the carrots

Transfer the carrot pieces to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Place on the upper oven rack and roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, transfer the onion wedges and pepper strips to a separate sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the za'atar to coat (you may have extra). Transfer to the other side of the sheet pan. Place on the lower oven rack and roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork and the chicken is cooked through.* Remove from the oven. Carefully transfer the roasted chicken to a cutting board. 

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.
